A smaller version of cat. No. 54 bead above, the colors and forms of the beads are the same, with a total of seven concentric-patterned protrusions.
a) Concentric patterned protrusions have been attached to a cylindrical bead. Four protrusions made up of layers of white, brown, white, and cobalt glass have been attached to the cobalt-colored body of the bead. Rows of small yellow and white protrusions are arranged above and below these larger protrusions.
B) Three large concentric patterned protrusions made of four interleaved layers of white and cobalt glass have been attached to a turquoise glass bead body. Small yellow glass protrusions have been attached between the three larger protrusions.
C) Four protrusions of six interchanged layers of white and cobalt glass have been applied to the turquoise glass bead body. Small protrusions of yellow glass have been arranged between the concentric patterned protrusions.
D) Three multi-centered circles have been attached to the black globular bead body. Each multi-centered circle is composed of six double concentric circles of white and light green glass surrounded by a black and white double concentric circle. Small yellow glass protrusions have been arranged around the concentric forms.
E, f) The colors of glass used and pattern composition are the same as those seen on cat. No. 57-d and the compound concentric patterns are made up of five small concentric forms.
G) The patterns and the color of the glass body are the same as those seen on cat. Nos. 57-e, f, and the small concentric forms are made from white and cobalt glass.
